1086   Image10c Green, Ty. III (33). Perfectly centered with wide and well-balanced margins, deep rich color, long and full perforations all around, face-free strike of circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST USED EXAMPLES OF THE 1857 PERFORATED 10-CENT TYPE III IN EXISTENCE. THIS STUNNING STAMP IS THE ONLY EXAMPLE AWARDED THE GRADE OF SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E., WHICH IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

The first perforated 10c stamps produced by Toppan Carpenter from sheets printed from Plate 1 are notorious among collectors for their poor centering. The example offered here, with unusually wide margins on all sides, bright color, a face-free cancel and in pristine condition, is the finest we have ever encountered.

Ex "Natalee Grace". With 1999 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $12,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and the only example to achieve this grade. (Image)

1087   Image10c Green, Ty. IV (34). Position 74L1, recut at top, pretty shade, beautiful centering with wide and balanced margins, neat strike of circular datestamp

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE PERFORATED 1857 10-CENT TYPE IV IS GRADED XF-SUPERB 95 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

10c Type IV stamps are defined by the recut of one or both outer lines at the top or bottom of the design. Type IV stamps come from only seven scattered positions on the left pane and one position on the right pane of Plate 1. Therefore, only 4% of the stamps from Plate 1 are Type IV, and since their population is low they are difficult to find with such choice centering.

Ex Merlin. With 2008 P.S.E. certificate (XF-Superb 95; SMQ $15,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only three others share it. We have not offered another in this grade since 2012. (Image)

1090   Image12c Black, Plate 1 (36). Intense shade and proof-like impression nicely complemented by blue circular datestamp, beautiful centering

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. THIS SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 12-CENT 1857 ISSUE FROM PLATE ONE IS GRADED SUPERB 98 BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED.

Due to narrow spacing on the plate, most examples of this stamp have perforations touching at least part of the outer frameline of the design. The example offered here has far wider margins than most.

Ex Merlin. With 1989, 2003 and 2007 P.F. and 2009 P.S.E. certificates (Superb 98; SMQ $10,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded and only three others share it. This is the first we have offered in this grade since 2012. (Image)

1094   Image30c Orange (38). Gorgeous centering with unusually wide margins, radiant color as fresh as the day it was printed, neat strike of red grid cancel

EXTREMELY FINE GEM. A SUPERB USED EXAMPLE OF THE 30-CENT 1860 ISSUE. AN EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT ISSUE TO FIND IN SUCH SUPERB CONDITION. THIS MARVELOUS STAMP IS EASILY ONE OF THE FINEST IN EXISTENCE. IT IS GRADED SUPERB 98 JUMBO BY P.S.E. -- THIS IS THE HIGHEST GRADE AWARDED AND THE ONLY EXAMPLE TO ACHIEVE IT.

The narrow space between subjects on the plate makes it almost impossible for the perforations to clear the design on all four sides. The example offered here, with extra wide margins at sides and perfs clear at top and bottom, is a true condition rarity.

Ex Senchuk and Merlin. With 2009 P.S.E. certificate (Superb 98 Jumbo; SMQ $9,000.00). This is the highest grade awarded to a Scott 38 in any category (unused or used), and it is the only example to achieve this grade. (Image)
